Showtime Developing Sequel Series to 'The L Word'
Showtime is developing a sequel series to their drama The L Word, which aired from 2004 until 2009.
The reboot which will have ties to the original series, will be executive produced by series co-creator Ilene Chaiken alongside a new writer, executive producer and showrunner,Variety reported.
Some ahead-of-their-time series from the '80s and '90s may be due for revivals in today's reboot-crazed TV environment.
Series stars Jennifer Beals, Kate Moennig and Leisha Hailey are also expected to executive produce and reappear on the show alongside a new cast of characters once the project is approved.
After a six-season run, The L Word aired in syndication on Logo. The series followed the lives and relationships of a number of gay women.
Chaiken expressed interest in returning to The L Word while speaking withEntertainment Weekly in May. "When we went off the air in 2009, I think a lot of people thought, Okay, the baton is passed now, and there will be lots of shows that portray lesbian life. There's really nothing. It feels like maybe it should come back," she said.
